Abhishek Rane, Abhishek Tanavade, Deep Sharma, Sumin Raveendran "Electromagnetic Band Gap Structure Antenna", International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT), V41(2),105-108 November 2016. ISSN:2231-5381. www.ijettjournal.org. published by seventh sense research group

This synopsis presents a design of circularly polarized microstrip antenna with inset feed and employs Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structure to improve antenna efficiency and bandwidth, and it also suppresses surface waves. A cross slot is introduced with equal arm lengths. The antenna is designed to work on RT duroid 5880 having thickness of 0.1588cm and r of 10.2.The proposed EBG structure constructed with many vacuum holes. Return loss, VSWR, E and H plane pattern of the antenna are observed with Zeland IE3D.
